Abstract

Physicians are required to interpret, abstract and present in free-text large amounts of clinical data in their daily tasks. This is especially true for chronic-disease domains, but also in other clinical domains. In our previous work, we have suggested a general framework for performing this task, given a time-oriented clinical database, and appropriate formal abstraction and summarization knowledge. We have recently developed a prototype system, CliniText, which demonstrates our ideas. Our prototype combines knowledge-based temporal data abstraction, textual summarization, abduction, and natural-language generation techniques, to generate an intelligent textual summary of longitudinal clinical data. We demonstrate both our methodology, and the feasibility of providing a free-text summary of longitudinal electronic patient records, by generating a discharge summary of a patient from the MIMIC database, who had undergone a Coronary Artery Bypass Graft operation.
